obama is saying we're doing a shot across the bow. for them we're going home. three days we don't want an iraq war. it has none of the effect of a shot across the bow. it is simply a way to assuage the conscience of a president and a lot of people in the west without achieving anything. >> one more challenge. the syrian government requested u.n. inspector teams stay on the ground to investigate the scenario that rebel groups have been using chemical weapons. that could lead to yet another delay. back to you. >>gretchen: syria is the main topic of discussion today and whether or not the president is going to actually make a decision today or not. this is really a serious matter. i think it is interesting to watch how this unfolds with sort of this deliberating with the president. we've known him over the last five and a half years to take time to make decisions, but do you need to be a little bit more definitive when making such an important decision as this. could it have to do with what britain is doing? david cameron called parliament back so they could discuss it there and parliamen
